Acupressure is a traditional Chinese medicine technique which applies physical pressure to certain points of the body to aid the elimination of stress, aches and pains and muscle tension.
The acupressure mat contains 210 carefully positioned spiked flowers, with each flower hosting 42 pressure points. The pillow contains 48 spiked flowers, each hosting 42 pressure points.
They say that using the mat for just 20 minutes per day can ‘help to relieve stress, improve sleep, increase energy levels, and reduce aches and pains’.
You can use the mat either on the floor lying flat on your back or stomach, or place it against a chair and sit against it to control how much pressure you wish to apply.
